I guess we should document to run testparm and look at the upstream
changelog for more details when doing major upgrades.

The 'map untrusted to domain' was introduced as a result of my group at
the university complaining to upstream that our usecase (similar to the
one of Josip) did not work anymore. From an upstream's pov it's only
logical to default the option to no btw. But I think it's probably a use
case that is more common for Debian users and should probably be
mentioned explicitly.
